Woodbury Magistrates Court Register 1892

This booklet was compiled by members of the Devon Family History Society in co-operation with the Devon Records Office. The booklet provides an extract of some information and further details may be obtained from the Devon Records Office. The records of this Magistrates’ Court form part of the Woodbury Petty Sessions Division collection [reference: 1820P] held at Devon Record Office. Courts sat at Woodbury and Exmouth in the East Devon area. The records include a number of Magistrates’ Court registers, also sometimes known as ‘registers of the Court of Summary Jurisdiction’ dating from 1891 to 1968. There is also an incomplete series of magistrates’ minute books of court proceedings dating from 1849 to 1951 [ref:1820P/M/1-36]. The first three minute books, covering the years 1849-1859 and 1886-1889, give details of earlier court cases not covered by the register indexed here. The Juvenile Court registers in this collection begin in 1934 and end in 1968 [reference: 1820P/RJ/1-19]. The records also include an incomplete series of licensing registers for public houses, clubs, cinemas and other places of entertainment, beginning in 1923 [reference: 1820P/L/1-10]. Later Woodbury Magistrates Court registers are found in the East Devon Petty Sessions Division collection [reference 1821P]. This booklet covers Magistrates’ Court register entries for a single year only from the register covering 1891 to 1896.
